I propose a Winter Writing Contest. The rules are pretty much the same as previous contests, the only change is the "Winter" theme.

Just for it to be in one place, here are the rules for the competition.

1) All submissions must be anonymous!

2) The submissions must relate to the season of Winter in some way.

3) No more than two posts per submission. MAKE SURE I CAN TELL THEY ARE TOGETHER!

I'll make the links NEXT FRIDAY (12/13/2013). The deadline will be on 12/31/2013, anything that shows up in January will not be counted. I don't see it being a problem for anyone to write something in that time frame.

It's mentioned in your story, by Letty, that Okuu is experienced with men. How did she get her experience? She just has sex random guys or something?
>> No. 12765

She's had a number of healthy youkai relationships, all of which ended for healthy youkai reasons.

There was a conversation over this on IRC some time ago, and I’m wondering what people think about this topic.

I came across >>/th/141485 when looking at old arguments, and this attitude of "IRC? Useful? lol" struck me as something that would not be out of place at all even now in 2013. And this is a problem.

There is this enormous running joke that the IRC channel is some kind of dicks-infested hellpit where The Leadership™/The Cabal™ who hold absolute power over THP plot new and dastardly schemes to twist the minds of readers and halt the progress of writers. Now, admittedly, the dicks-infested part is entirely true an alarming percentage of time. It is a general discussion channel for whatever people happen to find interesting at the moment, and the userbase of THP overlaps with the communities that are frankly really weird by normal standards. But extending this to "IRC is like this all the time, and it's useless to ask for help" is really shutting off a resource that could help a lot of writers, especially those not fortunate enough to have understanding friends that will proofread their fanfiction about magical flying girls.

So the problem is that writers, new or old, don’t think that the IRC can be a resource to writing, because maybe 1. the general perception makes it sound useless or 2. it's scary or 3. "I went in once and asked for a proofread and people were busy talking about girls with dicks or fighting with each other or something and nobody answered me so I left after 5 minutes" and so forth. What's feeding this is the classical response every time someone on the boards suggests going to IRC for help. Of course, it's a joke, and it actually is pretty funny, but even if it is, it's contributing to the problem.

Here is what I think:
Lots of writers aren't able to make use of IRC because they either 1. never come in because of the negative reputation, 2. show up, ask a question, and leave after 5 minutes because nobody's shown any interest, or 3. show up, observe briefly, and leave bec

Might as well jump on this bandwagon.

I'm usually either lurking or chiming in with the occasional bit of nonsense, so I can proof and/or debate ideas/canon/waifus. Just look out for Ben.
>> No. 12543
Well, I guess I'll go ahead and volunteer too. You can generally catch me there at any time, although I'll generally exit IRC if I'm playing vidya. I might also rarely be eating or watching a movie, but if you shoot me a ping I'll respond when I get back. Name's Ral on IRC, for those who wish for my assistance.

Honestly you'd have better luck going into a THP sub channel, even #touhouporn.

Really? Really now? Sure, Mima is pretty great but do you have any idea how stupid this sounds?

For starters,

You are aware Zun lives in JAPAN and thus has no reasons to care about this at all, right?

Next up, have you considered fangames? Some are terrible, but you could probably find one similar to what you want.

I'm hoping you just brought this to our attention because the petitioner is an idiot. If you are the petitioner, I hope you are trying to troll people. If you are, I think it worked. For me at least.

As some of you might know, Nanowrimo is next month, November. It stands for "National Novel Writing Month," in which the goal is to crank out a 50k word story in a month. The story will probably be awful.

But we're not going to do that.

No, the challenge I put to you, THP, is to do DAILY UPDATES FOR ALL OF NOVEMBER.

I intend to do this, alternating updates between ASHIT and PFD.

Now that the gauntlet's been thrown down, who's stupid enough to do this with me?

Now the question is.

Should we do this again next year?
>> No. 12309
I think the question should be 'why wouldn't we do this next year?'

And the answer will probably be: 'because the site died'

Definitely! Assuming I'm even writing something by November of 2014. Knowing me, I probably will be.

Hello there, author of Impetus here.

I am posting this here because I was not sure where else I was supposed to. I would like continue in the Gensokyo of Impetus since it was written like the beginning of a story. Now someone mentioned that it would be interesting to see this story unfold in letters and similar things and that I should not waste my time on battle scenes and the like, since most of the time they end up boring, horrile or both and that there is a lot of battles already in other stories.

Now that the contest is over and I tried writing for it I would like to try a full story and see how it goes. At first I thought about these letters as a collection of shorts or the like, but due to the awesome ideas some of you had, thanks again for that, I gave it some thought and came up with a format on which I would like some feedback, ideas, reasons for/against it etc. so I know if I should actually write something or run away in shame.

First of all, I would like people to vote in the following system. These would be write-ins, so which turn the story takes is, to a certain degree, up to you. Every person votes 3 things:

1. The faction/character taking an action

2. The target faction/character

3. The action itself

Seeing how there is a lack of responses here and on IRC whenever I ask, ill take this as a sign of lack of interest. Thus I will shelve this idea for now. Maybe write some shorts or something.
>> No. 12238

Firstly, I can't speak for IRC but if you want attention here, you should probably turn your sage off.

Secondly, THP is lazy when dealing with story planning. If you want them to care, just start writing. They'll complain if they don't like something, will vote if they do like it, but don't expect them to plan for you. If you want to write it, then write it. Only then can you really gauge interest. Hell, I think about half the site never bothers to check General Discussion anyway.
>> No. 12459
This is probably in large part due to misunderstanding what IRC really is and how it's used.

1. The number of people in the channel is wholly unrepresentative of the number of people paying attention.
2. It is not unreasonable to wait an entire hour for a response.
3. Lack of response does not usually mean lack of interest; it generally means one of: people are talking about something else; people who are interested aren't paying attention; people didn't see.

tl;dr you should probably ask multiple times, as most people are perfectly happy to devote attention to someone seriously seeking writing advice and other related help. Just because we're talking about horse dicks or something doesn't mean we won't change topics.

V5 is way past the autosage limit, so I'll take it as a sign to create a new thread. I guess many of you already know how this works, but it never hurts to explain it again for the newbies. Post here any queries about stories containing a particular character, plot, or whatever you fancy, and we'll search through our archive and our memories to post any story that comes close to your liking. Or if you want to recommend anything to the rest of THP, post it here.

I'll start myself with a query of my own: anyone knows a good fic starring Hatate that is not smut?
